    1.      Patrick pointed out that there had been no meeting for 7 weeks and asked the attendees if they wished to confinue with the club – All present said that they did. It was agreed that we would focus on getting on the water and letting people know we exist. It was noted that we need approx. €600 a year for insurance and other costs (Kennys Lane etc) should bring that up to near €1000 – we have €1500 in the bank and we need to ensure that we fundraise where possible. Sinead said she or Finbarr would have full financial details for the next meeting.

    4.      Ardmore Event: Patrick read out messages from Bill Flynn, secretary of Ardmore Boat Club asking if YSC could oversee a Dinghy race in Ardmore during the pattern festival – unfortunately we could not agree to assist due to lack of resources. Patrick agreed to inform Bill. Various members did say that they will bring their own boats to the event.

    5.      Blackwater Event is confirmed for Aug 15th. Adrian is organizing and we decided to cover the planning of the event at our next meeting
